Appalachian Dracula was famously quoted as saying, "I never drink…moonshine." Teach the original Dracula a thing or two with today's deal: for $11, you get two wine flights at Malibu Wines (up to a $24 value), just 25 miles north of Santa Monica. This deal is valid on Tuesdays between 11 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.
Choose two flights, consisting of three to five 1-ounce pours, which can be selfishly indulged or reluctantly shared among multiple sippers in Malibu Wines' outdoor tasting room. The Saddlerock Ranch Flight ($10) includes wines sourced from multiple vineyards throughout the central coast of California, expertly coalesced for complex varieties disguised as chardonnay, pinot noir, merlot, and old vine tawny. The Semler Estate Flight ($12) consists of wine from Malibu Wines' very own vineyard just steps from the tasting room, and includes a sauvignon blanc and three cabernet sauvignon swishables that gracefully lube up a locavore's gullet. Bring along a good friend, a romantic partner, or a sentient Muppet, and discover a new and indulgent way to relax.
Must be 21 or older.
Malibu Family Wines
Eighty-one-thousand vines grow across Malibu Family Wines' 90-acre vineyard, producing eight varietals in total, including cabernet sauvignon, sauvignon blanc, and malbec. Once bottled and corked, many of the vineyard's Semler and Saddlerock wines end up at the tasting room in Los Olivos, a homey space with indoor and outdoor seating, occasional live music, and a large wooden tasting bar where customers are free to smell, sample, and swirl away. Those who enjoy the wines can rejoice knowing there's more where that came from—the vineyard expects to increase its vine total to 100,000 in the near future.
